Johnnie Walker VDL\r\n\r\nbay, born 2012, 1.70m, KWPN\r\n\r\nZapatero – Mermus R – Upgrade – Marlon – Nimmerdor\r\n\r\nJohnnie Walker VDL was the talk of the town at the KWPN Stallion Show. The son of Zapatero jumped sensational at the second round viewing in Den Bosch and was placed third in the champions ring. The pedigree of Johnnie Walker VDL includes many foundation sires, both directly and indirectly. Sire Zapatero is developing into an excellent breeding stallion; his son Fernando V won the silver medal at the World Championships for 6-year-olds in Lanaken last year and offspring like Dyango VDL ( Suzanne Tepper), Datero H (Paul Kennedy) and Zapzerap (Enrique Gonzalez) perform successfully at international level as well. Through Zapatero, the bloodlines of both Chin Chin and Ircolando were added to the pedigree of Johnnie Walker VDL. Grandsire Mermus R is a ‘Keur’ awarded stallion and can be found on the dam’s side of many successful showjumper. In addition, Mermus R is a son of the valuable Burggraaf out of a dam by Ramiro. Great-grandsire Upgrade brings in the genes of both Heartbreaker and Pilot and Marlon is a son of the French foundation sire Zeus. Later on, the pedigree of Johnnie Walker VDL goes back to ‘Stallion of the Century’ Nimmerdor.\r\n\r\nJohnnie Walker’s dam Elia was awarded ‘Elite’ and gained a score of no less than 80 points in the KWPN Mare Test. For technique and dedication she deserved an 8.5, while her scope was valued with a 9. Granddam Rianca received the ‘Prestatie’ predicate, since numerous offspring jumped at 1.30m-level or higher. Additionally, great-granddam Bianca produced the world-famous showjumper Liberty (Laura Kraut), who competed at the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000 and the Grand Prix-showjumpers Gravutell (Hanneke Mol) and Ocana (Tiago Augusto de Mesquita). Bianca also stood at the basis of many international showjumper, such as the well-known Baileys of Michel Hendrix who is a member of the Dutch Olympic squad nowadays.\r\n\r\nIn the KWPN Stallion Test, Johnnie Walker VDL caught the eye again. For his scope, he gained an 8.5, while he gained an 8 for all the other jumping aspects, finishing on a total score of 80.5.\r\n\r\nJohnnie Walker VDL: the sensational jumper of the KWPN Stallion Show out of the damline of Liberty and Baileys\r\n
